Reduction of Skydip Scans

This is done by SOLVE SKYDIP.

These commands will scan the current index for the specific data, and fit the data for each antenna. The data may be used to solve for the forward efficiency and the water vapor content (default), or to solve for the receiver temperatures and the water vapor contents. Note that at the frequencies currently used, the results for the water content are not very reliable, since the dominant absorption around 90 GHz is oxygen in good weather conditions.
